Amy F.Amy F.

Major: Professions in Deafness, with an Interpreter Preparation concentration, and a minor in Spanish

Graduation Year: May 2019  

Hometown: Asheville, N.C.

My personal motto is: Jesus gave me His everything, so I'll give Him mine.

My goals are: To graduate from UNCG, pass the National Interpreter Certification test, and work as a trilingual interpreter. I also am excited to get married, have kids, and be a home-maker!

I selected UNCG because: We have the best interpreter prep program around!

My best UNCG moment: Meeting my four best friends freshmen year.

My biggest surprise at UNCG: Receiving a scholarship that I didn’t even know I was eligible for!

My favorite place on campus: I really enjoy the quiet tables in the EUC, either upstairs in the food court or downstairs in the big booths. They are a great place to get away from the dorm and focus on work.

On the weekends: I try to relax! I study and watch Netflix or take little trips.

My favorite class: American Sign Language, because it is taught in ASL so I get exposure to the language, practice signing, and learn more about it — so fascinating!

I am involved in: Cru, Lloyd International Honors College, Deaf Hearing Campus Connection

My favorite food on campus: Coffee! I also love getting Chick-fil-A nuggets and a Naked Juice smoothie as a power lunch.

Favorite thing to do in Greensboro: Explore all the coffee shops! There are so many. Also, I LOVE my church!

If I could have a superpower, it would be: Instant memorization, so I could learn really quickly and have a lot of things stored in my brain! (Wow, I sound so nerdy …)

My one piece of advice for prospective students: I know it's awkward at first, but put yourself out there and invest in relationships. You never know, someone you meet could be your future spouse, best friend, boss, etc.!
